Association for the Conservation of Threatened Parrots; Order for the Production of Documents
The Department of the Environment and Energy's office of compliance is reviewing the allegations made by the German association to determine whether to launch a formal investigation under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act. Releasing the names of the previous owners of the birds that were not directly involved in the export process would be a contravention of their privacy. This could discourage people from engaging in good faith with the regulatory process in the future.
